Why you should delight your customers by offering sliding door fitting as a handyman or joiner
Sliding doors may have been seen as just a gimmick for a time, but today they’re a popular, readily-available alternative to traditional hinged doors that add an extra touch of style to almost any wardrobe with any size doors.
With more and more people adding the modern touch to their home furnishings, there’s never been a better time to offer sliding wardrobe door fitting as part of your services as a handyman or joiner. While those who purchase sliding wardrobe door tracks and wardrobe doors are likely able to fit the systems themselves, there is money to be made in taking care of the job for them. So, if you’re not already, here’s why you should add sliding door installation to your repertoire.
Sliding wardrobe doors are easy to install (but they look complicated)
At Runners, all our systems for sliding doors are specifically designed to be as easy and stress-free as possible to install and can be fitted by capable people with even the smallest amount of DIY experience. However, many customers who would like to add sliding wardrobe doors to their home environment either lack the most basic experience and skills or simply don’t have the confidence to have a go at installing the sliding door tracks themselves. For example, some may struggle to make sure the door position and opening width are precise. Even the idea of having to drill holes is a nightmare for some people.
At face value, it’s a complicated-looking process which puts a lot of people off trying at all, and they’d rather leave the installation in the hands of someone who specialises in this type of work. That’s where you come in.
By offering sliding door installation as part of your services, you’ll be attracting this large segment of the public who feel as though they need a hand, even though the process is relatively simple – this is yet another point why you should take on sliding door installation. While many of the jobs you will undertake may be tiresome and complicated, installing sliding wardrobe doors will be an easy job if you’re a competent handyman.
Plus, if you or your client opts to buy their sliding door kits from Runners, all our products come with easy-to-follow guides, so you’ll always have something to follow, making your job even easier.
Sliding wardrobe doors are becoming more popular
Hinged doors have been around for a long time, but they’re quickly becoming a relic of a past age. Not only can hinges be awkward to fit (depending on the type of hinge, the wardrobe and the weight of the door) they also have a tendency to loosen and slip the longer they’re in place. Add to this the fact that people are becoming more conscious of making space-saving measures in their homes and sliding wardrobe doors suddenly become a no-brainer; why waste time with oversized, cumbersome wardrobe doors that take up mountains of space when sliding doors are so much more space-efficient, elegant and pleasing to the eye?
It’s because of this that sliding wardrobe doors are popping up in more homes than ever – meaning there’s an opportunity for reliable, experienced joiners who are able to fit them, saving these people time, effort and potentially a lot of stress if they should struggle. If you haven’t already, it would be wise to get on board with the growing trend and use it to enhance your own business.
Sliding wardrobe door kits are readily available
The technology might seem impressive to those who aren’t familiar with them, but the truth is kits to fit sliding wardrobe doors are readily available and can be fitted to a whole host of wardrobe doors, making them very accessible to almost any client, whatever style of wardrobe they want.
